Giving the Order

A poem about a commanding officer, instructing his troops at war.


1. Giving the Order

What goes through his head,

When he makes the call,

To kill the troops,

To make them fall?


What goes through his mind,

When he says 'why yes,

Make them pay,

Make them dead'?


What does he think,

When he says 'yes please,

Blow them all up,

Take what you need'?


What are his thoughts,

When the day is done,

The fields lay calm,

The battle's won?


What does he feel,

When he goes to bed,

The day turned to night,

A new one ahead?


What dos he know,

When he sees the plains,

The littered bodies,

Fallen like rain?


For he killed them all.
